Belive me, I'm all for *all* of that. > But here I am really high-jacking the thread, so I'll stop.. If you have further thoughts, I'm all ears. This is all relatively new, and I don't expect to have all of the answer or solutions. Obviously, having to bring up a full database is an extra step (one we try to make easy to do), but, sadly, we don't have any way to ask PG to verify all the checksums with released versions, so that's what we're working with. Thanks! Stephen
